I have some questions about setting up MOCA in my mom’s house. I have not done anything as of yet. The object of this installation is to get ethernet connection capability for a laptop in the same room where there is also a cable set top box.
Here is the current setup:
5 - XG1V4-A Set top boxes
1 - CGM4140COM Gateway / Router - admin tool shows that MOCA is enabled and the specs indicate that it is MOCA version 2.0
Cable Point Of Entry (POE) has an Amphenol IPGH3m4-VF DOCSIS Passive Port Splitter - There are 4 coaxial cables plugged in here:
1 Incoming Cable = Input port
3 Output Cables = in ports H1 (low loss hybrid port , H2, & H3 (high loss hybrid ports)
(M1-M4 MOCA ports all have terminators)
H1 coaxial cable goes to sunroom and splits - Antronix CMC2002H-A - 2-Way 5-1002 MHz splitter - 1 end goes to XG1V4-A in the sunroom and the other end goes to the router / gateway in the living room
H2 and H3 cables go through a vent and under the house - these two cables are used for the XG1V4-A boxes in the other 4 rooms (3 bedrooms and one in the kitchen)
Actiontec ECB6200 - 1 pair - kit comes with 2 adapters, 2 coax cables, 2 ethernet cables, 2 power adapters and 2 Starburst SB-2WMS-2.0 5-1675MHz splitters
NOTE: The setup instructions that came with the Actiontec ECB6200 say to connect the coaxial cable from the outlet in the room to the Starburst splitter. From the splitter, one coax cable goes to the TV and the other goes to the ECB6200 Coax In.
Configuration things I don’t know yet:
Here are my questions:
Here is the video I watched about the Amphenol IPGH3m4-VF DOCSIS Port Splitter:

This is a very well written and thought out set of questions.
I hope it was answered. I had my own questions, and I wish some information was included here.
I hope the poster received the answer he needed, although from what it sounds I am sure that he will be capable.
